2010 Respect Awards - Los Angeles, A Huge Success!
GLSEN raised more than $1 million to advance our mission of making schools safe for all students at the Respect Awards - Los Angeles presented by Centropolis Entertainment, on October 8 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Celebrities, advocates, donors and community leaders honored "Modern Family," Dan Renberg and Eugene Kapaloski, Out & Equal Workplace Advocates and Educator of the Year Ferial Pearson.
One of GLSEN's most successful events to date, the gala marked the first LGBT event to honor the Emmy-winning Best Comedy series "Modern Family," with actor and director Rob Reiner presenting the award to the show's creators and cast.
The Beverly Hills Hotel held a packed audience of more than 550 attendees. Many thanks to Co-Chairs Linda Bell Blue, Kevin Brockman, Michael Lombardo and Chip Sullivan, the host committee, our sponsors and the many people who made the event possible.
